Fylde coast Bank staff saw their efforts add up to a whole lot of help for two charities.

Santander employees went head to head with colleagues from Glasgow as they competed in a “store wars” fundraising challenge for the bank’s charity partners Barnardo’s and Age UK.

A team of Santander staff took over the Age UK shop in St Annes for the day. Each team vied to see who could increase sales by the most in the store wars challenge to raise as much money as possible for each charity.

The teams became sales assistants for the day and sold as many items as possible, including clothing, homeware, books, DVD’s and accessories, all of which had been donated by members of the public.

Debbie Taaffe, Santander regional manager in Blackpool and the Lakes, said: “It was a great day and a really fun way of raising money for our charity partners and to help change the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our society. We were thrilled to raise £19,927 matched funding from Santander.”
